Kareena Kapoor to Star in QMobile’s Most Expensive Ad Till Date

Kareena Kapoor to Star in QMobile’s Most Expensive Ad Till Date

It would not be surprising news that any Bollywood star is appearing in our local advertisement as by far, there have been several TVCs on-aired that prominently screened Bollywood celebrities.

This time, QMobile has taken up with this prospect, by casting India’s most popular female star Kareena Kapoor in their upcoming advert.

ProPakistani was told that the mastermind behind the whole venture – from conception till the execution — is Mr. Zeeshan Akhter, Chairman and the CEO of QMobile.

According to the information shared with ProPakistani, to shoot a television commercial for the smartphone brand, Qmobile, Kareena Kapoor Khan took off to Bangkok this week.

Under the hood, this advert will be directed by Farooq Mannan, famed as The ‘Imtiaz Ali’ of Pakistan’s advertising among several people particularly in Indians.

In this niche, Mr. Farooq has worked with QMobile‘s previous campaign featuring Aditya Roy Kapoor, the lead cast of Aashiqui2.

Together with the team, this ad is taking up services of international technicians as well as Pakistan’s best one. So like all fantastic aspects, Kareena has charged her standard amount for supporting an International brand plus the additional charges for making flight to abroad.

Seemingly, Farooq Mannan has also requested a Director of Production from New York to be a part of this venture. So undoubtedly, this ad will prove to be the most expensive television commercial in Pakistan’s advertising record.

Just to add, Kareena will be endorsing QMobile’s flagship Noir Z4.

Moreover, a fervent source has mentioned Kareena’s interest in Pakistani advertising and that she was previously unaware of Farooq Mannan and his spectacular directorial skills as well as his earlier endeavours.

But after looking upon his latest commercial for the same cellphone company with star cast of Iman Ali (famed by Pakistani International super hit Khuda Kay Liye), Kareena consequently agreed to make an appearance in this Mobile ad.

  • Kash FBR walay apni pockets bharnay kay illawa yeh sab bi daikh lain, kitna tax Qmobile walay daitay hain aur kitna ads pay spend kartay hain.

    • Brand is Pakistani. Have you ever heard QMobile been sold in any other country of the world? you should have asked “qmobile is manufactured in Pakistan or not?”

      • Qmobile gets sold in India under the name Micromax… Qmobile A10 is known as Micromax A100 in India. A Chinnese company supplies the phones. The phones are first launched in India and then they are launched in Pakistan. The phone’s exterior is a bit different in both countires.

        • so they are using two fake outlets or organizations in Pakistan and India to look like country’s own manufacturer but actually the phone is being made in China. Nice business model though.

        • Read the question again my dear..he said “is Qmobile Paki brand or Chinese?”. Qmobile itself constitute the brand, which is distinguished by the name not by the product. So Qmobile is Pakistan brand (by name) and the fact it Qmobile is not available in the whole world except in Pakistan. Yes, it is a product of china which is re-branded in Pakistan.. for further reference/discussion/definition of brand, please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brand

    • Micromax is Indian phone manufacturing company. they sold sets to Qmobile in Pakistan, as Myphone in Philippine. also sold their smartphones to bangladesh. Its purely INDIAN Manufacturing not chines

      • Haha But it is not related to any development of IT or telecom in Pakistan. A showbiz or marketing journal would be in better position to publish such news.

        My perception of being IT and telecom blog means it always publishes Developments or any issues with IT and Telecom infrastructure, or any ict company not providing or providing the good services not the fact that which model they are using.

  • And do you think that after seeing Kareena Kapoor wearing big cleavage clothes, our youth is going to buy these phones ??? How lame !!

    • Be Honest! Bollywood stars are highly regarded by Pakistani awam, mostly illetrated, why would companies cast them from lawns to banaspati ads?

  • Enough with the ads :-/ They Should Better focus on the software & user experience, develop their own UI skins like samsung, htc, huawei etc instead of making some tweaks in system by labeling QMOBILE everywhere… I mean seriously ????

    • I totally agree! Qmobile dont even trying to compete with international brands.Instead of paying this Indian actress they should make their brand more reliable.HTC is making its way without a single advertisemnt in Pak just because of its Quality and reliability.Atleast they should make a unique & atractive UI.

  • Even if they hire Shah Rukh Khan in one of their ads I’d still not buy their phones… and Qmobile is an Indian Company.

  • Well one thing that no body thinks… What is “Q” means in Qmobile? Did any body research? I dont like this Because of my Religious ethics…. May be some one should research it too….

  • someone here on Propakistani was complaining that Qmobile is not advertising it’s flagship z4. How about now? :3
